We did it a little differently. We moved out and upsized, and built. Our
son bought us out. :-). We house hunted for 25 years and like you found the
one that filled our needs. Good luck!

The government has no problems taking up arms against its people.
Various Policing depts love to out power the civies, and drive bullet
proof vehicles and suit up with kevlar. Equal rights?
So have you built a nice crossbow from wood or wood and bamboo yet?
What do you use for your arrows, steel billet or ash?
Have you tried a pistol version yet?
So no action of government can in your mind justify taking up arms
against it? Selling women into slavery, making soap out of Jews, eating
babies? None of that would justify it, we should just go along voting
out tweedledum and voting in tweedledee, whose major point of political
contention is whether babies are best served fried or baked, and get on
with our lives, those of us who are not women, Jews, or babies and thus
still have lives?
Exactly so. Someone who takes up arms against his government
is a traitor until he succeeds in replacing that government.
Robert E Lee and his fellow Southerners were called patriots,
but because they didn't succeed in replacing the government
they ended up treated as traitors.
Au contraire, for many of them it was what happened. Those
who were still imprisoned (i.e. not dead) were pardoned by
President Johnson in 1868.
Note that specific to Lee, his property was confiscated
(without any 4th amendment compensation, either). Just for
spite the US Army used the grounds around his house as a
graveyard, to ensure he would not try to recover it after
This word gets bandied about quite a lot. The Founders had experience
of treason, having committed quite a lot of it and gotten away with it.
They chose to define it as follows:
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war
against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and
comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony
of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court."
And there's the real issue. If they win then they aren't traitors
